Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $1,072,603)

The purpose of the Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program (42 U.S.C. 3797u et seq.) is to provide financial and technical assistance to states, state courts, local courts, units of local government, and Indian tribal governments to develop and implement drug treatment courts that effectively integrate substance abuse treatment, mandatory drug testing, sanctions and incentives, and transitional services in a judicially supervised court setting with jurisdiction over nonviolent, substance-abusing offenders. The FY 2010 Adult Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program will provide grant funds to jurisdictions to implement or enhance a local drug court or to improve, enhance, expand, or financial support drug court services statewide.

The Indiana Supreme Court's Division of State Court Administration will use statewide drug court grant funds to increase drug court capacity and enhance services by providing case management, transitional housing, and evidenced-based treatment assistance. The six drug courts supported by this award conform to the state strategy for substance abuse reduction and are certified by the Indiana Judicial Center, an agency of the Indiana Supreme Court. The drug courts referenced in this application are established under Ind. Code 12-23-14.5 and include the counties of Delaware, Marion, Monroe, Spencer, Vanderburgh, and Vigo.
